Feeling the summer in February!

Ah, the thoughts of the beach this cold February!
Especially tonight with the snow earlier and wind gusts of over 40mph... brr!

While DH and I were out to dinner this evening for Valentine's Day, this was sitting in the parking garage.  What a sweet thing to do!  I picked a pink one and added it to the beautiful flowers DH gave me earlier.

This was his gift from me, although it's kind of for both of us.  The dragon for me and the coffee for him.  I still need a proper frame, it will be hung by the coffee/tea area.

This is what I decided to do with the leftover hearts I cut out for Karen - I made 50 Valentine's for Nathan's classes.  He added stickers and signed his name...
and this is what I put inside the card.  Thanks for the suggestion, DJ!

I started September, with some help of course!

The Grow Your Blog winner will be chosen on Sunday sometime, my assistant isn't here.  He's taking a break and spending the night at his Great Grandmother's (Nana's) house, with his Gammy.

 I know I still owe responses for comments left on my last post.  Sorry for the delay, I'm working on it!

Last finish for January

I'm on a roll, here's July!
I finished it earlier in the week, it helped having a couple snow days and no lunch duty!
I changed the colours again with what I had and I like it.  I just had to search for substitutions... 

My DMC floss is all nice and tidy, but my other threads are a mess!  That will have to wait for another day.

Taking a stitching break, I made some paper hearts for my CS, Karen.  She sent me paper and I also used some of mine.  She's going to make a heart garland with them and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

So now I have all these leftovers and I'm hoping to be able to use them somehow to make Nathan's Valentine's cards for school.  Any suggestions?

 Nathan's been busy reading his Beano and Dandy books and he's even picked up some British slang, I love it!  No more trash, it's rubbish now!

He's also been busy in scouts, making this great box which he has decided he's going to put his school papers in for me.

Yesterday he joined his den for the Klondike Derby.  Way too cold for me, so it was a father/son day!

August has been started, with my helpers of course!  Hopefully this will be another quick one.

Today I'm meeting DJ and Denise for lunch, then we're off to the Stitching Post for their Superbowl sale.  I only need some thread that I ran out of, or at least that's my plan.

On a side note, I've been watching Grey's Anatomy from the beginning since I hadn't seen it before.  This episode is where the cast sings and I can't stand it!  I don't want to fast forward it because I don't want to miss anything, but I don't know how much more I can take!
